IS UP HIGH TREE
Thls is What Independents Think-
All Action on Unpaid Bills Is Mock
ed by INatlves Will Consider
Nothing During Extension To
day's Legislative Work.
9 And It came to pass that there were fuur Independents and four
republicans In the Senate. And the Republicans said unto the In-
dependents, "Let us Introduce a bill for the payment of the just
debts of the Government ns submitted in yesterday's message from
the Acting Governor."
Then it was (hat the Independents arose In their wrath with Wm.
White leading the charge nnd erlly there was n Ilimery How of Ian-
guagc which resulted In both sides retiring tn their ramping grounds
for consultation. The ayes nnd noes "ere called and It canio to pass
that Cecil Drown's hill failed to pass, these ayes and noes resulting
in a vote of four to four,
Then came n "wcla ka lino" timo during which eight-ounce gloves
were much desired. Adjournment sine die was suggested, adjourn-
ment until tomorrow was nttemptcd nnd ns a compromise Wm.
White asked for a half hour recess. The Republican murmured:
"We won't go home until morning" and suddenly changed the time
to "I don't care If we never come back." The Independents sing n
falsetto of "There's a policeman wnltlns for you at tho door." There
was n chaos of voices and llahel reigned for a few short seconds,
when the stentorlan,(tones of tho senatorial chair announced ad-
.Jourpmcnt until 10 o'clock tomorrow on u showing of four to three.
Tills Is' the parable, pntly put of the peculiar part played by tho
Senators In -their session of this day.
.And while tho Senate was dlscunslng wh.it was tn In; done, it came
fo pass that the House used n block and tackle to resurrect the two
messages of tho Acting Governor from the proverbial "table." Again
did tho Independents arise in tholr might nnd smlto the messages
with a hand of Iron nnd they died nn Ignominious death of -strangtt-
latlon by Indefinite postponement. Another vote was taKcn nnd the
clerk was instructed to convey tho news to the Senate that the
HousejWns ready to adjourn sine die. Tho House thereupon ad-
JournM to the call of the chair, the Representatives walking out to
the tune of "Wp hye the Acting Governor up a tree, up a tiee,"
At the beginning of the sc.-uton ot
I lie Senate this forenoon, whlcti did
not start until 10(45 o'clock, the clerk
read n communication from the House
announcing concurrence in tho Acting
Governor's veto. Then came Cecil
Drown with nn attempt to suspend tho
rules, whit h succeeded by a voto of
four to three. Mr. Drown the Intro
duced his bill, providing for 'the pay
ment of the unpaid bills of the Pub
lic Works Department as submitted In
a message of the Acting Governor.
Wm. White objected seriously, speak
ing ns follows:
"We are starting In on a new ses
sion of the Legislature and it might
he snld that we are like a crab try
ing to crawl up n mountain. I am not
In favor of supporting n measure ot
this kind. I havo been In favor of
many measures submitted by Mr.
Drown but I cannot support him In
this one. Gentlemen, there's a nigger
In the fence' as sure as you aro horn,
There's something behind alt this.
When tho Governor called tho extra
session, ho designated tho appropria
tion bill as tho only mcasuro to be
considered, this oecauso of the fear
that the County bill would bo.resur
rected. From Senate Frying Pan.
"Now tho Acting Governor comes
forward with n veto to tho Current
Expenditures hill as nn excuse for
calling this present extension ot tho
extra session. It Is a scheme, gentle
men, nothing hut n scheme. There
Is an ulterior motive and wo nro on
tho brink ot n precipice. I admire tho
tactics of tho leader of the Republican
party Mr. Cecil Drown but I appeal
to his good sense, to his honor as n
senator sent to the Legislature by tho
natives, to desist from tho presenta
tion of this bill."
Mr, Drown said nothing tn answer
to tho remarks of 'Mr, White, Bald that
all he wanted to attend to during the
extension of the session wn.t tlicmat-
ter ot the unpaid bills, and then called
for a vote. It was n cuso of four to
four and, thero being nothing before
the house, thcro wero motions to ad
journ, as already detailed above.
Tho Republicans stated fls they left
the Senato this forenoon that they
would not return tomorrow so that
there would he no quorum. Tho In
dependents retorted that u minority
could sit and compel tho nttendanco
of nbsent members.
Tho Independents nro very much
crippled and, as Mr. White said this
morning: "Several of our fat and
lean friends have silently slunk nwny,

Owing to a break down at

Some have gone out of fear and others
out of hunger." Mr. Nnkapaahu left

nounced elsewhere, has refused to re
turn. Messrs. J. T.tllrown and Kaohi
havo departed for their homes In Ha
waii and Dr. Itussel has been in Olaa
for n month.
Thus, In traversing the rlreumfcr-
eiuo of tho Legislative circle, It may
bo nsked with feeling: "Where are
Into Mouse Fire.
For almost tho first tlmo during tho
extra session, tho Republicans apd In
dependents stool front to front. In
their voting. It was a battle royal In
tho House today and only two Homa
Rulers went over to tho enemy.
Acting Governor Cooper's messages
laid away In sepulchre, the door tight
ly shut and his plan to extend the ses
sion was practically killed,
The Republicans began the fight by
moving to suspend tho rules. Robert
son, who mado the motion, stated that
ha wanted to Introduce a bill embody
ing tho unpaid hills mentioned In tho
Governor' last message. Ho said that
as long as tho bills were Just they
should lio paid and for that reason ho
had prepared tho liljl which he now
desired to Introduce.
Tho motion to suspend the rules was
lost after a closo voto asfoltows: Ayes,
Aylctt, Kumuatae, Mnkalnai, Kelkl,
Robertson, Iloogs and Kckaula, 7;
nne. Deckloy, Kaauwne, I'aele, Mahne,
I'rcmlergast, Kaulmakaole, llaaheo,
lllhlo, and Almllt, .
Mnhne moved to take tho Gover
nor's messages oft tho table. This was
curried without any difficulty. 'The
samo member then moved to Indofll
nltuly postpone tho messages, which
motion received several seconds.
Robertson moved to refer tho mes
sages to tho Committee on Public
Lands with orders to draw up bills
containing the Items mentioned In the
messages. "I seiond Robertson's mo
tion," bald Kumalan. "This Is n mat
ter ot considerable Importance since
many Kor peoplo ns well as rich are
suffering from tlm non-payment of

tracted, and If we want to make the
namo of tho Territory of Ilaivall mcap
anything wo must pay theso bills. We
will spoil the credit of tills lountry
unless wo do this."
"I ngree with what Mr. Kumiilae has
Just said," chipped In Mahoe', "but we
must look further. Some of these bills
have been running since '97. They
were discussed during the regular bcs
siou hut, owing to lai It of time, could
not be dealt with. Why were they left
for this Legislature to pay unless
there Is some plan In It to make this
Legislature the most extravagant ever

should certainly not lie on our should
ers, for If the credit of the cpuutry
has not been hurt by the delay up to
